Hi there! Any other new moms out there trying to lose baby weight? I just joined JC after having my baby in march. I gained 55 pounds with the baby and reached 209 lbs and I'm 44 years old. I dropped 20 lbs quickly right after and now stuck at 189lbs and feel sluggish and awful. I lost 4 lbs the first week on JC and then had a hard time staying on plan for the last two weeks. Anyway, just wanted to give a shout out to anyone out there trying to lose their baby weight and any tips would be appreciated!

Hey there! I waited about a year to start losing the baby weight (plus) after my first. I'm currently pregnant with my second after having lost about 85 pounds. So, come April/May I'll be back on Jenny. Welcome aboard and as long as you work the plan you'll do awesome!

Hi, I have 8 pounds pre pregnancy (2nd baby), but a total of 33 pounds to healthy weight. Just finished week 1 and lost 2.3 pounds. Slower than I hoped for, but it's a start!

It's a good start! As long as the weight comes off, right? I just wanted to say welcome to JC and hope you continue to post! Lots of us use the General Forum and you'll find lots of good ideas, encouragement, and support there!

Does having a two year old and STILL fighting to lose the baby weight count?
I have 15 more to go. I'm right there with ya.

I gained 65 lbs with this baby. Lost 20 right away and then was stuck. I hopped on Weight Watchers and enrolled my butt into boot camps at Lifetime. They killed me, I was 40 lbs overweight still but I really think the vigorous work outs combined with the dieting helped shape my body back. Now I'm so sick of weight watchers and giving JC a try. So far so good!
